MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS
Expanding a firm’s suite of products and services; penetrating a new market; expanding a global footprint; mergers and acquisitions are critical milestones in a company’s ability to evolve. But often the promises expected under an expanded company do not materialize.
The post merger challenges are often underestimated or not considered at all.
While extensive issues involved in systems interoperability, merging infrastructures, taxonomy, and technology standards are crucial, they pale in comparison to the cultural challenges, when one entity perceives a merger as an identity loss, or when the parent firm ignores the fact that the smaller firm’s operations may be worth emulating.
Is the acquisition aligned to the company’s strategic plan?
How thoroughly was the due diligence maintained, and are the original cost expectations tracked, controlled and monitored?
Is the post acquisition activity involving only technical issues and ignoring cultural aspects?
Technical, Process and Cultural challenges can undermine and diminish the gains that were expected from a merger; however the risk can be mitigated with appropriate and holistic analysis and merger implementation.
With deliberate yet expeditious analysis, the returns promised from a merger will be realized for management and shareholders alike.
